Product Description

This 87 page file includes station activities focused on congruence and similarity through transformations, transversals, and the angle-angle criterion. They are designed to align with common core standards for eighth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.

I created these activities to use in station rotations in an eighth grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover:

Unit 1: Introduction to Transformations

Unit 2: Understanding Congruence Through Transformations

Unit 3: Understanding Similarity

As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:

1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 pages!)

2. Three of a Kind - Translations (Open-Ended!)

CCSS.8: G.A.1, G.A.1.A, G.A.1.B, G.A.1.C

3. Math Match - Reflections (36 Cards!)

CCSS.8: G.A.1, G.A.1.A, G.A.1.B, G.A.1.C

4. Pick-A-Card - Rotations (6 Scenarios!)

CCSS.8: G.A.1, G.A.1.A, G.A.1.B, G.A.1.C

5. Roundabout - Transformations (4 Versions!)

CCSS.8: G.A.1, G.A.1.A, G.A.1.B, G.A.1.C

6. Article - Transformations (With Graphic Organizers!)

CCSS.8: G.A.3

7. GO FISH - Transformations (36 Cards!)

CCSS.8: G.A.2

8. Spin-Off - Transformations (Unique Problems for Each Student!)

CCSS.8: G.A.2

9. Problem-Solving - Transformations and Coordinates (Requires Reasoning!)

CCSS.8: G.A.3

10. I Have Who Has - Similarity and Congruence (15 cards!)

CCSS.8: G.A.2, G.A.4, G.A.5

11. Article - Angle-Angle Similarity (With Partner Activity!)

CCSS.8: G.A.5

12. Math Match - Similarity (36 Cards!)

CCSS.8: G.A.5

13. Three of a Kind - Angles (Open-Ended!)

CCSS.8: G.A.5

When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.

These activities are included the BIG BUNDLE for Eighth Grade First Semster at 20% off, and the BEST BUNDLE for Eighth Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.1

Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.1.A

Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.1.B

Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.1.C

Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.2

Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.3

Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.4

Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.5

Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
